Dated to the early 20th-century, these upright display shelves are constructed with lightweight frames, open sides, and low railings enclosing each shelf. The pair's clean lines are accentuated by a rich dark brown finish, lightly faded at the edges from a century of use. Once the centerpiece of a Qing-dynasty scholar’s studio, these open shelves were ideal for displaying stacks of books, scholars' rocks, precious antiques, and other scholarly implements. With streamlined sophistication, the timeless design of these bookcases holds its own in a contemporary office or living room.

“I am particularly fond of PAGODA RED as we have known the family for so long. Betsy is a professional in every way and her intelligent taste comes from a long line of family knowledge in the arts. She and her team are the very best to work with and we find treasures with every visit!”
